Herein lie my my thoughts as I read, write, parent, read some more, think about editing, then take a nap.
I used to work in publishing; now I stay home with my children. Late at night, when everyone else sleeps, I write. The characters: daughter Ellie (14), daughter Ada (11), son Teddy (7), and husband Paul (41).
And am embarrassed to admit that lately I haven't sought out blogs that make me think. In fact, quite the opposite is true. I've been keeping up with very few blogs, and those I have been reading have been more of an occasional "I wonder how my friends are doing" sort of read than a search for thought-provoking writing.
My time, my brain, my new baby, my marriage . . .
While even my "I wonder how my friends are doing" reads often challenge me to think, I'm just nominating one blogger today, because her blog really stands alone in terms of the way it stretches me, challenges me, and leaves me with much to mull over for days and weeks after I've read her.
